The Perth Mint’s first annual-issue gold bullion coin series was the Gold Australian Nugget. The Gold Nuggets were issued from 1986 to 1989 before the Perth Mint transitioned the series to the Gold Kangaroo. However, in recent years the Perth Mint has revived the use of gold nugget designs in other bullion and proof releases. Today, Proof Gold Australian Nugget 4-Coin Sets are available to you online at Silver.com.

The Gold Australian Nugget Series was available from the Perth Mint for just four years, but it generated a lot of interest in gold bullion from Australia. The series featured 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold bullion coins, with various other weights also available in the proof version of the coin. In recent years, the concept of nugget designs have reappeared on commemorative proof gold coins.
All Proof Gold Australian Nugget 4-Coin Sets in this product listing come with the original presentation box from the Perth Mint.

Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of all Proof Gold Australian Nuggets. The Queen has been depicted in six different busts on Australian coins. The most common to feature on the Gold Australian Nuggets are the 1998 Ian Rank-Broadley design that was used from 1999 to 2018/2019 on Perth Mint coins, and the 2015 design from Jody Clark that began to appear on Perth Mint coins starting in 2018. Both are right-profile portraits of the Queen.
For the reverse design element, the coins in this Proof Gold Australian Nugget 4-Coin Set feature varying images of the gold nugget. The original series from 1986-1989 had a new nugget image with each release, while the 2019 release replicated the iconic image of the Welcome Stranger Nugget on the 150th anniversary of its discovery in Western Australia.
